Soman Chainani’s first novel, The School for Good and Evil, debuted on the New York Times bestseller list, and has been translated into over 26 languages across six continents, with a film adaptation from Universal in the works. As a graduate of Harvard University and Columbia University’s MFA Film Program, Soman has made films that have played at over 150 festivals around the world. When he’s not telling stories or teaching in New York City, Soman is a die-hard tennis player who never lost a first-round match for ten years . . . until he started writing The School for Good and Evil. Now he loses all the time.
